This is a highly personal decision and one that rests in what your budget will allow as well as your needs. If your windows are relatively new and you only need to replace a broken one, it makes sense to take care of just that one window. If your windows are older and you’re faced with replacing a few of them, it may be wise to replace them all so they will match and give you the same higher level of energy efficiency.
If you’re wondering if you should replace your windows one at a time or all at once, take a look at these three main considerations.
When you start noticing your windows becoming an eyesore every time you pull in to your driveway, this is a good sign you should replace them. Your windows can make or break your entire curb appeal and the aesthetics of your house. Especially if you are planning on selling soon, window replacement should be a top priority.
Replacing a single window can increase curb appeal for a relatively low investment. This one simple, stylistic change can reintroduce a focal point that catches the eye. Updating multiple windows will completely transform the façade of your home, as you achieve a consistent style with higher expenses yet higher rewards.
Window care and operation are both important. When you’re having problems with your windows – perhaps they’re sticking, won’t open and close right, or won’t latch properly – this is a good reason to opt for window replacement. Replacing the windows that are giving you trouble just makes financial sense.
Replacing just a single window means you can start saving right away on energy efficiency, maintenance costs, safety risks and stress. On the other hand, if one window is losing its functionality, this could be a good time to inspect all the other windows, as they may be facing the same kind of trouble – if not right now but in the near future. If all the windows are of similar age, you may want to replace them all to save on future costs as well as to maintain the same style across the board.
Once you start replacing single windows here and there, you end up with a variety of styles over the years that don’t create a consistent look. Increasing the aesthetics of your interior is easy with a single window replacement in a living room, for example, where you can install a beautiful bay or bow window for increased natural light. Or, choose a specialty window for an extra dose of unique architectural charm.
